In-home care is personalized care, fostering a sense of familiarity and comfort that allows your mother or father to recover faster and thrive in their element while they’re at it.
At Bradley’s Home Health Care here in Southeast Texas, we’ve been exploring the benefits for 30 years.
Another reason for the rising popularity of in-home care stems from cost-savings. According to a 2011 study commissioned by the Hospital in the Home Society of Australasia Ltd, “The home care model … costs 22% less than hospital care for six specific common health conditions: cellulitis, venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolus, respiratory infection/inflammation, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and knee replacement.”
In addition to the financial advantages–lower health care costs that utilize fewer resources–in-home care lends itself to independence, comfort, security, dignity, and high-quality care for seniors. This is true for seniors everywhere and the Houston area is no exception.
Home health care also gives family members an active role in helping their loved ones rehabilitate or, as the case may be, live as comfortably as possible through their last days.
